Rowan’s is a mixed year 1 and 2 class. Lessons are structured during the morning, this includes guided reading and role play, Numeracy, Phonics and Literacy. The afternoon starts with handwriting practice and then topic work taught through other areas of the curriculum. Year 1 go into Oak class two afternoons a week to interact with the Year Reception and have child initiated play. This works well because Year 2 have extra support with mental maths and writing, preparing them for the KS1 SATs in the summer term.
